I was going to grab the last novel I read to do for this exercise. But since my GRE book is in my hand why not.

Page 123, 5th sentence, and the next 3 after that.

Well, since there aren't really sentences on this page, I'll just give the 5th question on the page, haha.

95. The passage state that organic solidarity predominates in societies with relatively high levels of intragroup dissimilarity because
A. it enbables individual differences to be minimized
B. it causes socities to become more highly specialized, thus aiding industrialization
C. individuals who engage in highly specialized activities must rely on others to ensure that their basic needs are met
D. these societies are at greater risk of being affected by social stressors
E. these societies are more likely to engage in shared activities and values

I know you didn't read the passage, but for the record, the answer is C.

I'm also supposed to tag 5 people, so if you're reading this, and haven't done it yet, go for it.

Since we're talking about my GRE book I just thought I'd give you all an update, I'm taking the test the 1st week of August in Columbus (they don't offer it close to here, and I already know where the testing center is in Cbus as opposed to searching Dayton for the place to take it). Right now I'm making flashcards of the most popular vocabulary words. But mostly I've been focused on the Quantitative stuff because that's the part I suck at. I just hope my score is good enough the first time, I don't know if I'll have time to take it again...*nervous* And I looked up some scores for schools with my program (I'm not sure how reliable the website is) and its going to be a pretty tall order, so we'll have to see how it goes.

Hope you all had a good 4th weekend, the fireworks were pretty good, but then again, I just love fireworks.

Odd Pets

Every once in a while I click the "Marketplace" application on my Facebook page (in case someone is giving away a free bed that I could use).  Upon doing so yesterday I saw a pet Wallaby for sale for $1,200.  
I want one.  
However, the question is...can I have one?  Are wallabys...or is it wallabies...or maybe that's definitely not know what I mean...but are they legal in this state?
Well let's start with what we know is legal: cats and dogs (unless your landlord says no then you'll be out on the street), most lizards, but those are basic pets.  Here's a little snippet into the unusual (and expensive) pets.  
World's most expensive pets: 
Green Monkey: $16 million Missy: $1.2 million Capuchin Monkey: $10,000 That's right.  I said LEGAL!  There are neither bans nor requirements on monkey ownership in Ohio so go for it!  Buy your monkey!
Need a less feminine monkey?  Try these guys!
De Brazza's Monkey: $7,000-$10,000

Squirrel Monkey: $…

Gen Y Gives Thanks

I apologize a thousand times for the lack of updates and for putting this up so late. Large amounts of technical difficulties have inhibited my blogging, email checking, social networking, etc. However, now that I have a moment's internet access I would like to give you the link to this brilliant idea that Sharalyn Hartwell has cooked up. She writes for the Gen Y Examiner and to combat the stereotype that Gen Y is a bunch of ungrateful brats she asked members of Gen Y to write what they're grateful for and has been posting them in series.

Here's the link. She's posted a few each day so keep reading these articles of course I'm partial to mine which can be read here.

Your Blog: Resume Boost or Liability?

I have recently read two different blogs that have both touched on the same topic. How your blog affects your resume and/or job search. The first was an interview with Sasha Halima, one of my favorite bloggers, at PR Breakfast Club. You can read it here. The second is on Brand Yourself, Your Blog is Your Extended Resume.

Brand Yourself argues just what the title says that a blog is an extended resume and that when a potential employer searches for you and finds a blog full of fabulous content, they'll hire you.

And while I couldn't agree more that I AGONIZED over the fact that potential employers were most likely Googling me and getting results for some person in Seattle or a Blues Singer in New York the interview with Sasha Halima said something that also struck a chord with me. Your blog can be a "liability." That is the scariest word that any potential employer could ever say because, if you're a liability to them, odds are other potential employers could fee…
